Institutions and organisations responsible for interventions with violent and aggressive youth often lack the capacity to detain adolescents and fail to create an environment for at-risk youth to learn and adapt through the adoption of alternative, prosocial behaviour strategies. In order to counter the increased risk of youth engaging in violent and antisocial behaviour, and to decrease their risk of becoming involved in criminal activities as adults, Bom Combat aims to tackle the causes of youth violence, substance abuse and gangsterism through the teachings of Martial Arts.
Martial Arts and combat sports generally offer a unique frame of development by enabling participants to experience their own limits while building relationships with peers and coaches that require inclusion and discipline of all to develop one’s individual skills. The overall aim of Bom Combat is to tackle the causes of youth violence, substance abuse and gangsterism by channeling strong emotions into proactive and prosocial behaviour through the teachings of Martial Arts in practice and philosophy, as well as through individual support services.
